It’s hard to know what kind of legacy Fedor has among the casuals these days. We’ve had a couple of significant “waves” of fans making their way into the sport since his heyday- the Brock wave, which saw him at the tail end of his prime, and the McGregor and Rousey wave, for whom he’s only an abstraction. Tito and others have proven that there’s significant nostalgia dollar out there for the stars of yesteryear,
Emelianenko is the longest reigning heavyweight lineal champion in MMA history, and has a mystique and modesty replaced by a ferocious fighting style once in the combat sports arena. His legacy in the sport and his impact in MMA and been compared to the likes of Muhammad Ali in boxing, Pele in football and Wayne Gretzky in ice hockey. President Putin is a friend and fan, and US President Donald Trump has followed the fighter during his son’s promotion of MMA.
